Chappaqua, NY 10514
Description: Chappaqua percussionist, Norbert Goldberg, and dancer, JLyn, explore the close connection between the drummer and dancer using examples ranging from traditional African dance to hip-hop. The concept of art forms (drumming and dancing) as a means of communication is introduced.
Latin American dances such as the Cuban Cha-Cha, the Brazilian Samba, and the Merengue from Santo Domingo are accompanied by typical percussion instruments and reinforce the African connection. This program offers many opportunities for group participation, culminating in a Conga line involving the whole audience. Appropriate for all ages.
